Karim Slaoui talks about Take Eat Easy.  Wrap up in a sketchnote format!  I had the pleasure to listen to Karim’s story at Take Eat Easy. During the talk he talked about his past, about the different waves of funding for Take Easy Easy and shared what went right and wrong with the Belgian start-up.




You can see the whole collection of sketchnote in a nice "long read" sketchnote format on Nadia's Blog

I particularly the love light color palette and the shading.

Beautiful work Nadia!

Graphic Recording at World Café: Pat Molla

Here a colorful sketchnote by Pat Molla .

She wrote:

This visual note, it is a wonderful experience that gave me a final powerful image that had failed in step by step as graphic recorder. It is the synthesis of four teams sharing what was discussed in a World Café, my job was to be a graphic recorder .... and they took my parking space tablecloths drawn. So I had to listen, imagine and then capture. Grateful for the experience!

Very interesting, Pat.

Thank you for sharing with us!

Scotland 2016 Sketchnotes: a travelog by Julie M. Elman

scotland 2016 sketchnotes

We are happy to have Julie M. Elman with a new collection of great sketchnote.

She wrote:

I just returned from five weeks in Scotland, where I co-taught for a study abroad program called the Scotland Field School (through the School of Visual Communication at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio).

I worked with design students during this time, and I thought it would be a challenge to "practice what I teach," in terms of gathering content, organizing it and finding meaning within it. The students I worked with sketchnoted as part of their classwork (along with creating infographics and magazine layouts), and I decided that I, too, would sketchnote along the way.

I wanted to continue practicing my sketchnoting skills, and I also knew that making my own sketchnotes would be useful for remembering my experiences as I traveled to different towns and learned new things. As I sketchnoted, I found myself combining journal-like entries with more factual tidbits — which turned into a nice mix of the personal and observational on the same page.

Using a pen, watercolor pencils, a self-watering brush and a sturdy Moleskin sketchbook with heavier stock paper turned out to be the perfect combination for sketchnoting while traveling on trains.

Never a dull moment — and now I have these sketchnotes to help me recall my lovely time in Scotland from this summer.
